My current practice explores the transience of human ability to capture the spiritual in the context of the Islamic faith, and how the elemental nature of faith itself challenges one’s attempts to control or contain the experience of it. I investigate this through Salah, the Islamic prayer. My work examines the systems and structures of spirituality in Islam, exploring concepts of human perception, the sublime and geological time. I lead an interdisciplinary, research-based practice which involves scientific enquiry alongside my study into Islamic philosophy and the everyday practice of Islam. The complexities of Islamic thought have influenced my experimentation with photography, film, installation, sound and painting, and as such have translated into works that study human imprints following Salah, the microscopic and the telescopic, the desert landscape and the cosmic framework that configures the timings of Salah.
